A visit to Rabbit Hash

Today we took part in a cleanup in my mom's "home town". Not sure if that's what you can call it, it's more like her home "wide spot in the road".
Rabbit Hash is a hidden gem on the banks of the Ohio River and in the last few years it has become quite a tourist attraction.
I never thought that I would one day bring my own children (though Nathan will be the only one of the two to remember) to show them around. Fast forward 29 years later and here I am telling them stories from my youth and then my mother can share her stories too.
I really would like to visit often, in hopes that my children develop a special place in their hearts for this "wide spot in the road" as I have mine.

A very special Easter

This Easter was a very special one for our little family. Not only was it Keaton's first Easter, but Nathan and I were baptized today.
I'm so blessed that I got to share this very special day with him. We have been going to our current church for nearly three years (Tripp has be a member of the church since he was young), Nathan and I discussed it and we felt like there was no better time than the present to pledge our loyalty to God than Easter.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead
1 Peter 1:3

2 months (Better late than never)

Our sweet Keaton,
You turned two months old on March 18th, 2012. Every day you show more and more personality! You are our little princess and we adore and love you so very much!
You are sleeping so much better. From 11:30 to around 6 in the morning. As long as you get your bottle around 11, we are good to go. You are still sleeping in our room in your rock and play sleeper, though we plan on getting you into your crib soon.

You love to watch everyone, especially Nathan! You pay attention to his every move. You also give daddy such sweet smiles when he comes in from work. You are so personable and bring us such joy!

Love alway,

K's Birth Announcement

I realized that I never posted Keaton's birth announcement. We used Tiny Prints for the first time and I loved how they turned out! We can't wait to use them in the future! :)

Keaton's Hospital Pictures

 I don't know why it has taken me so long to post her hospital pictures, but here they are!

I look at these pictures and it seems like ages since our little girl was this big. She is growing so fast and I can't help but wish time would slow down.

Special moments

Keaton had her first stroller ride this past week. We watched brother bear ride his bike and enjoyed the beautiful weather!

Nathan and I also got to go to the Lowe's build this weekend. It was nice to have some mommy and Nathan time.
